We the undersigned petition Hounslow Council to Not introduce a by-law to ban spitting, but enforce existing by-laws on litter instead. More details

More details from petition creator

We have enough laws which are not implemented. How many people have been fined for littering? How many people are fined for illegally cycling on the pavement, or driving in cycle lanes? Start by enforcing the laws we already have- which have far more negative impacts.

I do not want to be fined for discretely clearing my throat. In the absence of a tissue, the alternative is to swallow your phlegm- which is basically what you would be trying to enforce- not so catchy is it? A lot of spitting causes no offence.
